When students understand that they are in control of their brains, they are empowered to learn, to grow, and to seek out challenges for a lifetime of learning. The “Mineola Grows” project is dedicated to creating learning environments that help students foster this skill, through an understanding of age-appropriate neuroscience. Our collection of in-classroom activities, video lessons, and Professional Development are based on over a decade of research and exploration into Growth Mindset best-practices. They are, of course, always growing.
